Hi all,

LD> Package name was compat-libstdc++-33
Looks like VirtualBox was compiled/linked against GCC 3.3. If it's
true, IMHO this should be mentioned in FAQ since the problem may
appear in other distros, too.

Something like this:
Q: I'm getting
   error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open
   while trying to load VirtualBox precompiled binary What should I do?
A: Most likely, your system is missing GCC-comatibility packages.
VirtualBox was compiled using GCC 3.3 so if you are using 3.4 or
higher, you should install compat-libstdc++-33 (on Fedora Core 6) or
similary named package which provide libstdc++.so.5 in your distro.
